The executive director of the Ahulul Bay Assembly for Development (ABAD) in Liberia, Sheik Askary M. Kromah is urging all Muslims throughout the World to emulate the good examples of Imam Husain Ashoura against Yazid for the betterment of societies and states.
According to Sheik Kromah, Imam was a true Muslim who faithfully served God and mankind through his action which saw Muslims and non-Muslims alike having a true acknowledge that he saved Islam from destruction by sacrificing his life, noting that Ashoura had been successful in winning over the allegiance of the great majority of Muslims when the rest of the Muslim world was in a state of moral slumber.
Sheik Kromah made the statement recently on the campus of the Ahulul Bay Assembly Islamic and English School in Jah Tondo Town in Browerville City outside of Monrovia during programs commemorating the “Martyrdom’’ of Imam Husssin Ashoura.
The programs formed part of a regular singular sacrifice of Imam Ashoura and his faithful followers that shook the Islamic world out of its slumber when Muslims were forced to ask themselves why the beloved grandson of the Holy Prophet Mohammed was murdered so brutally.
“The long-term outcome of Imam Husain Ashoura’s actions by challenging Yazid and in the process of laying down his life to change the world and re-shape human destiny forever was commendable. Yazid and indeed all future despots, were put on notice that they would not be tolerated and that truth and justice would be upheld and ultimately succeeded regardless of the costs,’’ Sheik Kromah noted.
Imam Husain Ashoura was one of the two grandsons of the Prophet Muhammad and the younger of the two sons of Hazrat Fatima, the daughter of the Holy Prophet.
Sheik Kromah used the occasion to appeal to all Muslims throughout the world to be united and embrace each other as brothers and sisters and be each other keepers, stressing that in his belief if they unified it is possible that they will do many great things which other non-Muslims will see and also emulate.
“Now let me tell you that if you have planned a graduation party and your neighbor is also having a funeral program at the same time, please cancel it and as symbol of love for your fellow friend or neighbor,” he urged those at the program.
